When you add a business entity field to a portal page, you can use one of the following views for the field based on the type of the field:
For short text input. Use it for fields that store names, identifiers, postal code, website URL, and so on.
For long text input. Use it for fields that store description and address.
Radio Button or Checkbox
For displaying boolean values. Use it when you want to display boolean values for the field but store only one option. For example, a checkbox to enable auto notifications.
For displaying multiple options. Use it when you want to display and store multiple options for the field. For example, address type is a field where you can select multiple types for a single address.
